Hope 4 Tomorrow is an innovative school assembly program that looks at how stress, trauma, and mental wellness affect our daily lives. Using live student polls, an empowering speaker, and education, students are given the chance to examine their own mental wellness and learn how to seek help.

Why Is Hope 4 Tomorrow Important?

Students are experiencing stress, trauma, wellness breakdown, and suicidal thoughts more than ever. Unfortunately, they are not always wholly aware of how much they are experiencing or what to do about it. H4T strives to provide simple steps and education to accessing help when it is needed for a student or their friend.

In 2017, there were 47,000 reported suicide deaths in the United States

Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for youth (ages 15-24)

 

 

 

The Effects of Trauma

Pediatrician Nadine Burke Harris explains that the repeated stress of abuse, neglect and parents struggling with mental health or substance abuse issues has real, tangible effects on the development of the brain.
